What a day, what great weather, what a great ambience – and what a duo of winners: Mauro Caviezel and Denise Feierabend relegate Olympic champions such as Matthias Mayer and Tina Maze to the minor places and are thus the “2014 masters of all slopes”.
Red Bull SKiLLS remains firmly in Swiss hands. After having been hosted for the third time, there are still no names of foreign riders to be found on the list of winners. 2014 even provides some sort of déja-vu, at least regarding the winner of the men’s competition: Just as in 2012, there is a Caviezel on top of the podium in Lenzerheide. In 2012, it was Gino, and now, on March 30th, 2014, it’s his older brother Mauro who wins the event. “Now this is one cool way to end the racing season”, states Caviezel, 25 and a member of the B squad of Swiss Ski. Apparently, the Grisons is enjoying being in great form that late in the season: Ten days ago, he won the Super G of the Swiss championships.
Watch some highlights from the event, including some pretty bad spills. It is worth a watch!
